The CBI Friday submitted a report based on its probe following disclosures made by Suresh Singhal, an approver in the coal scam case involving industrialist and former MP Naveen Jindal.

The agency submitted the report before special CBI judge Bharat Parashar.

Singhal, who was a chartered accountant with Jindal group, was granted conditional pardon after his plea to turn approver was granted by court on July 11.

Singhal, Director of New Delhi Exim Pvt Ltd, was one of the 15 accused in the coal scam pertaining to illegal allocation of coal blocks. “I am ready to disclose the true facts of the case regarding the transfer of Rs 2 crore from Jindal Realty Private Limited to NDEPL further to Sowbhagya Media Limited in the form of the purchase of shares,” he had said in his plea to turn approver.

The court, however, clarified that Singhal will not leave India without its prior permission till further orders.
